The Creators Project is a new venture from Vice and Intel that aims to mash up art and technology with some of the best and brightest musicians, filmmakers, designers, and more from across the globe. So it’s a good thing they’ve got some real visionaries on board: Spike Jonze, Phoenix, the Yeah Yeah Yeahs’ Nick Zinner, Diplo, music video great Chris Cunningham, and Mark Ronson to name a few.
The multi-year project will feature collaborations between artists and showcases around the world starting with a massive NYC exhibition/concert/party June 26 at Milk Studios. The NYC event will feature performances by Sleigh Bells, Interpol, Die Antwoord (in their first New York performance), Gang Gang Dance, Salem, N.A.S.A., and Mark Ronson along with exhibits from Zinner, Takeshi Murata, Karl Sadler, Mark Essen, and Radical Friend (who directed those head-trip videos for Yeasayer’s “Ambling Alp” and “O.N.E.”).
So you lucky folks in NY should keep an eye on this.
As some of you have surely heard, Interpol has completed it’s new album.
It was recorded at Electric Lady Studios, New York, and mixed with Alan Moulder at Assault and Battery, London.
The four of us poured our collective heart into this music and we are very proud and excited to share it.
It’s a heavy record. But we’re feeling limber; and we’re going to carry it all around the world for you.
Touring begins this summer, so check here soon for announcements and show dates.
There is more: Sadly, Carlos will not be joining us.
After the completion of the album, Carlos informed the rest of us that he would be leaving the band. He has decided to follow another path, and to pursue new goals. This separation is amicable, and we whole-heartedly wish him great happiness and success. We will remain, as always, deeply respectful fans of this blazingly talented individual.
We can tell you that we have some very exciting new recruits joining us on the road. So stay tuned - we will promptly be revealing the identities of these illustrious players.
We eagerly await the opportunity to reconvene with you all - the greatest fans known to Rock.
